Joshua Tree Tour (1987) Videos
« on: March 18, 2017, 11:16:36 AM »
With under two months to go until The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 kicks off, I've been wandering around YouTube looking for great videos from the original JT Tour in 1987. I thought it'd be nice to have a thread where we could all post our findings! (I apologize if this thread already exists).

I found this gem earlier today: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login . It's the entire show from LA on November 18th, 1987. I think it's much superior to the Paris concert that was released with the 20th anniversary boxed set...Bono's voice is in much better shape. "Running to Stand Still" gives me goosebumps and "In God's Country" rocks as well. I can't wait to hear these songs again!

What other videos have you found and which are your favorites?

The in God's country from LA in 87 is the best I've ever heard. Mainly because of the the last minute or so... So cool

Annoyingly some of the videos aren't available to view here in the UK! I was hoping to watch the Today Show video on that's embedded on the home page but YT has it blocked for the UK! Oh well. Still plenty of Joshua Tree related stuff to watch on YT, which is cool! :)

There is tons of Joshua Tree stuff on youtube.

A lot of stuff can be found on our Tours pages for each concert.

Like this one from Denver on November 8, 1987:

Those videos from the Denver show are great to watch just like the LA show andwise mentioned. The performance of the band seems a lot more intense compared to the Paris show.
Thank you for posting the links!

I'm not aware of any video for this show. The only footage from this night that I know of, is from the R&H outtakes:

the syracuse is the oct 9 ny show i mentioned. that pontiac one is audience shot but i may check it out. i really only know the audio bootlegs outside of zoo and pop i never really had interest in the video bootlegs.
